----------- Chapter 15 Combining Block Ciphers
There are many ways to combine block algorithms to get new algorithms. The impetus behind these schemes is to try to increase security without going through the trouble of designing a new algorithm. DES is a secure algorithm; it has been cryptanalyzed for a good 20 years and the most practical way to break it is still brute force. However, the key is too short. Wouldn’t it be nice to use DES as a building block for another algorithm with a longer key? We’d have the best of both worlds: the assurance of two decades of cryptanalysis plus a long key. Multiple encryption is one combination technique: using an algorithm to encrypt the same plaintext block multiple times with multiple keys. Cascading is like multiple encryption, but uses different algorithms. There are other techniques. Encrypting a plaintext block twice with the same key, whether with the same algorithm or a differen...
